Meeting on new wind project draws big crowd

AURORA – A public meeting about First Wind’s proposed new wind farm in northern Hancock County drew a large crowd but only scattered comments and questions last Thursday night.

About 40 area residents gathered in the gym at the Airline Community School for the meeting, which was hosted by Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) staff.

First Wind has applied for permission to build an 18-turbine wind farm in Township 16 and Township 22.

The new facility, referred to as Hancock Wind in planning documents, would be located near the Boston-based company’s existing 19-turbine Bull Hill wind farm in Township 16.

Because it is located entirely in unorganized territory, the proposed project is not subject to any local review such as town planning boards. Instead, the application is being reviewed by DEP and the state’s Land Use Planning Commission (LURC).
